Often through reading to our kids, we are able to connect and approach subjects creatively. By clicking on “Read More,” you can learn a bit more about each book, and if we’ve had a chance to read it, we will review it on the these links. (Have older children in the home? Check out books for siblings on the General Kids’ Books list.)

NOTE: Inclusion on these lists does not necessarily mean endorsement as we have not had the chance to read all of them. Furthermore, with all our resources, we highly recommend you preview them first to determine if there are any trauma triggers that your child may not be ready to handle.
